Many of you are familiar with Lisa Borgnes Giramonti from a Bloomsbury Life but to me she is just the coolest girl on the planet! I met Lisa in NYC when our kids were little and in a cute school called Poppyseed. Well, as our kids would jump around like mad singing silly songs, playing trucks and double fisting gram crackers and apple juice, Lisa and I would be chatting in the corner about everything we loved that inspired us. It was like meeting a mommy soul mate and I was so sad when she told me she was moving to LA? Little did I know how much fun it would be to visit her. Her home is beyond chic , her family so much more than special and her talent is endless. You read her words for free but she used to be a writer on Will and Grace and her needle points ROCK. There is just too much to talk about when it comes to Lisa but since I am much more into the visual I am going to try an attempt at capturing her eye. I feel so honored to be able to post these photos but truthfully I much rather have them in a divine book sitting out on my coffee table!
Before A Bloomsburry life .. The New york Apartment Lisa lived in that I had the opportunity to visit BTW - Can you guess what famous SNL actress bought it from her?
An embroidery of a very interesting dinner party Lisa is the one with the red hair. It took her three months to make this.

The only person cooler than Lisa is her husband Piero . Their son Luca jams on the guitar and has a fantastic personality. If you had to choose a family to travel with this would be the one!
The House that makes you happy.
How fab is this door knocker?
This is where I wish I had my Monday Morning meetings - Don't you want to just chill there - DIGG the mirror the flowers the whole thing!
You have to admit that Lisa has guts and talent the kind that allows you to take an ikat bench and put it against a complex patterned wallpaper and make it work. I love this foyer it reeks of pleasant surprise!
I sat here and loved every second!
The Layout, color, comfort level, flow, eclectic pieces and vibe get a A+++++++++++++++++++++
The perspective here is drool worthy!
The wallpaper bookcases and fur bench make this room delightful!
The Dining room
Where great meals are born, Piero comes from a family of chefs and has a real talent!
I am so knocking off the flowers in the pitcher thing when I get home and isn't this banquette perfect?
Even the office inspires me - I generally don't love Turkish type rugs but Lisa makes me want one!
I was having a moment with chinz before she sent me this picture of her bedroom - How cool would it be if she had a crazy wallpaper backdrop?
